Fake council tax letters sent in Bridgwater and Burnham-on-Sea
People living in two Somerset towns are being warned to watch out for fake letters claiming they could be eligible for a reduction in their council tax.
Police said the bogus letters had been received in Bridgwater and Burnham-on-Sea.
The fraud involves offering a re-assessment of people's council tax band in exchange for their bank details.
Anyone who receives such a letter is asked to contact Avon and Somerset Police or Sedgemoor District Council.
The council also sent out a warning earlier in the month about a similar scam involving hoax phone calls.
